In 1985, Stewart died of a heart attack at the age of 47. He was part of the Stones' original lineup but was fired in 1963 by the band's then-manager Andrew Loog Oldham, because Oldham did not think Stewart's beefy looks fit the image of the band. However, Stewart (who was often referred to as "the sixth Stone") still worked with the Rolling Stones as a studio keyboardist until his untimely death. Stewart also served as the band's tour manager for many years.
